CENTRAL in the life of our college, for the last nine years, has been the beloved person- 
ality of President Jesse Cobb Caldwell. Coming from his successful pastorate of the 
Christian Church at Selma, Alabama, where he had deliberated on the crucial need of 
greater educational facilities for our people in the Southland, and for a season ministering to 
the Wilson Christian Church, meanwhile acquiring executive vision for his future work, then 
assuming our college administration where the beloved President J. J. Harper had so nobly 
laid it down, he has promoted the interests of Atlantic Christian College with singular 
efficiency during these memorable years. The material advancement of the institution is 
marked by its more than doubled dormitory Capacity for students, resulting in approximate 
doubling of its real estate assets. However, of highest importance in the progress he ini- 
tiated and wrought, is the educational plane to which the college rose, and has been main- 
tained, receiving co-equal recognition with leading colleges of the State, because of work 
accomplished and ideals inspired. 

The relations of Dr. Caldwell to the student body have been markedly happy. Enter- 
ing with an innate grace into all phases of the college life, religious, academic, aesthetic, 
social, forensic and athletic, he gave an intimate encouragement to the student's well 
rounded individual development. He sent the student from the life of the school into the 
school of life with all the mental and spiritual equipment practicable for the world's work. 
So affable was he that his touch with students in all their needs and resources was notably 
close, and especially when, during long periods, he resided in one or the other of the dormi- 
tories. No less distinctly happy was his constant relation to the faculty, in each of whom he 
engendered and maintained a candid respect toward himself, his policies and his principles. 

The people of North Carolina will remember Dr. Caldwell largely because of his ser- 
mons. With his superior pulpit ability, there is combined a forensic and homiletic passion 
rare indeed in the class of men who primarily must be scholars and administrators in the 
academic field. Because of his judicious labors in our main State mission fields, and his 
growing interstate, sectional and national observance and study of our ministry and the 
problems and resources of our people, the Board of Managers of our North Carolina Chris- 
tian Missionary Convention has been helped largely by his counsel and initiative. The 
missionary work of the Disciples of Christ in Charlotte, Wilmington, Greensboro, Rocky 
Mount, Raleigh and other important centers has been facilitated and evolved in large 
measure through his preaching and influence. His ministerial passion accounts largely for 
one third of the active preachers of North Carolina Disciples having been trained or inspired 
by Atlantic Christian College within its relatively short history. After any considerable 
association with him, one becomes conscious of an intangible power that gives to his person- 
ality, in its motor aspects, a contagiousness. This is his moral and spiritual dynamic, the 
source of his inspirational leadership, recognized in general, but especially in his training of 
the ministerial students. 

Being a descendant of the ancient Huguenot Cauldwell Clan, the progenitors of Oliver 
Cromwell, one might reasonably expect in Dr. Caldwell a virility worthy of the name. This 

1 1 9 1 H 

®lji> Pine 2Cnnt 

he possesses decidedly; not the least of his charming qualities being his hatred of sham and 
cant, and that which smacks of the effeminate. His manliness, however, is obviously bal- 
anced with a modesty, constant and real, to student and faculty. His qualifications embrace 
that rare and sometimes decisively important virtue of versatility. In the opinion of a 
leading member of the faculty, he can do more things with a higher average proficiency than 
any college president she has ever known. That quality, however, which more than any 
other energized and effected his work, is the spirit of self sacrifice, animating him through- 
out the nine years to do a successful work against heavy odds, of an institution in its initia- 
tory stages. In passing, we pleasantly mention, as matters of fact, that the president of 
the first educational institution of academic rank in North Carolina that continued any 
considerable time, was Dr. David Caldwell, and the first President of the University of 
North Carolina was Dr. Joseph Caldwell. These two Caldwells were from collateral branches 
of the parental tree of our own President Jesse Cobb Caldwell. Thus, in North Carolina, 
the name descends as a traditional synonym of the highest educational ideals. The great- 
est Statesman of the Carolinas — John Caldwell Calhoun — was likewise a member of this 
distinguished family. 

These paragraphs of appreciation would be incomplete without reference to Mrs. 
Caldwell, who, in her steadfast devotion to highest domestic and institutional ideals, was a 
constant vitalizing factor in the college entity. The young men will remember especially, 
her gracious efficiency while resident in the dormitory, and the young women, her man}' 
gentle and gracious counsels. Elizabeth, too, blossoming into womanhood, will not be for- 
gotten; likewise Mildred, with her fascinating baby ways. 

Worthy of passing consideration is "Prince," the college pony, the only "pony" allow- 
able in the institution. May he spend his remaining days contentedly in college service. 

President Caldwell, adieu! Regretfully, we see you go; yet you will not be gone, for 
your spirit will live within us, and we will build upon the foundations you have laid. Now, 
at the inevitable moment, the Blue and White of A. C. C. yields to the Blue and White of 
Drake, the Disciples' mightiest institution. You go from the "Land of the Long Leaf 
Pine," toward the setting sun, to the "Land of the Golden Rod," to its metropolitan city, 
called in sobriquet, "The City of Certainties." There, may your dynamic energy find its 
mightiest outflow in the channels of a cosmopolitan service, and we will cherish that in- 
destructible idealism of your nine years' implanting, in the imperishable traditions of 
Atlantic Christian College.

IN THIS issue of the Pine Knot, we have endeav- 
ored to mirror for you the more enjoyable side of 
our college life. With that in mind, we have pur- 
posely omitted much of the printed matter in order to 
give place to a pictorial review. If this volume gives you 
a correct conception of our college life in its different 
phases and helps us to keep alive the memory of under- 
graduate days, then we shall feel that our thoughts, 
cares and labors have not been in vain. With this 
twofold object in view, the Pine Knot of 1916 is sent 
forth upon its mission by 

The Editors.

DR. SMITH is a Hoosier, and after graduating at Vincennes 
University he entered Butler College, from which he was 
graduated in 1900. He immediately became the Pastor of the 
Kensington Christian Church in Philadelphia, and also a teacher in 
Elhanan Institute in that city for three years. He also found time 
to do some graduate work in philosophy in the University of Pennsyl- 
vania. In 1904, he returned to Butler and received his master's 
degree, then entered Yale Divinity School, from which he was gradua- 
ted with B.D. degree in 1905. 

He was professor in Atlantic Christian College, 1906-07. During 
that year, he returned to Indianapolis and was married, and President 
and Mrs. Smith are very kindly remembered by the people of Wilson. 
As professor in that institution, he manifested such genuine interest in 
its affairs and showed such marked teaching and executive ability 
that President Harper often expressed the wish that he remain and 
become his successor. On account of business interest in Indianapolis, 
however, he was compelled to return to that city, where he was en- 
gaged in preaching and looking after his business until 1913. 

For the past three years he has been the executive head of Beckley 
Institute, Beckley, W. Va. His vital interest in the secondary schools 
of the State has made him one of the State's leading educators in the 
preparation of its teachers. He is also a factor in the development of 
the Christian Church in that State. 

Mrs. Smith, with the three children, provides a charming home 
life for the president, while she has ever taken an active interest in 
the social and club life which has worked for the betterment of her 

The faculty and students were delighted with Dr. Smith's recent 
visit to the college, and are very happy that one who has proven 
so successful and shown such executive ability has been found to 
be its head.

Raleigh, N. C. 

From the Dunn High School, Aleta came four 
years ago with high anticipations of a successful 
college career. These anticipations have been 
realized, though the struggle was a long one be- 
cause she was one of the first graduates from her 
school, whose curriculum at that time was not an 
advanced one. Bravely has she won her spurs. 

"True as a needle to the pole 
Or the dial to the sun." 

Ayden, N. C. 

^Four years ago, Irma came to us from the 
Ayden High School. She has been a faithful, 
earnest student, endearing herself by her quiet, 
unassuming ways and gentle humor. 

"A creature not too bright or good 
For human nature's daily food."

From old Virginia, Willa came, after two years'

Sallie is a product of the Williamston High 
School who came with the "rep" of a fine student, 
and has proved worthy of this "rep." Indeed, 
she has become so enamored with study and delv- 
ing into the depths of philosophy, that she has 
decided "to climb to heights sublime," and we 
wish her the most abundant success in her ascent. 

"Age cannot wither her, nor custom 
Stale her infinite variety."

Waycross, Ga. 

From 'way down south, Ruth came three years 
ago and she has done excellent work. She grad- 
uates in both Voice and Expression. She has high 
ambitions, and hopes to cultivate still further both 
of her well known talents — if she is not enticed 
back to Wilson. 

"Sweet is every sound. 
Sweeter thy voice, but — 
Anv sound from thee is sweet." 


Washington, N. C. 

Jessie is another girl who loves to stay at A. C. 
She came to us six years ago, a little girl, and last 
year received her diploma in Piano. She returned 
this year and gets her degree. Such courage and 
persistency are admirable. 

"Give me a look, give me a face 
That makes simplicity a grace."

Mesic, N. C. 

A little boy called "Sam" came to us five 
years ago, and has grown in stature, strength and 
knowledge as well as in the esteem of his faculty 
and comrades until now he is a full-fledged A.B. 
He is ready to begin his chosen profession of 
Medicine and all good wishes for his continued 
success attend him. 

"He hath indeed better bettered expectation." 

Lagrange, N. C. 

Three years ago, came Elizabeth, who had 
spent a year at the Woman's College in Richmond, 
Virginia. Her great delight and her pre-eminent 
talent is music. This talent she has cultivated 
assiduously; plays beautifully and graduates in 
Piano. She proves: 

"That though on pleasure she was bent 
She had a musical mind."

Four years ago, Fannie came to us from the 
Willia'mston High School with the "rep" for 
brains which she has well sustained. She has 
absorbed so much philosophy, Bible and litera- 
ture, that we are inclined to think that her town 
will consider her a prodigy on her return and it 
behooves her to prove this true, but we sadly fear 
that Dan Cupid has marked her for his own. 

'"Her eyes are eves of innocence. 
And her voice is soft and sweet." 



For some years, "Bro. Joel" has been a stu- 
dent of A. C. C, taking both the academic and 
ministerial courses. He has also completed the 
course in Expression and receives his diploma at 
commencement. He returns next year to finish 
the required course for an A.B. degree, and the 
best wishes of the Class of 1916 are with him for 
his successful completion. 

"There is method in his madness."

Come, comrades! Let our voices blend 

In song so rich and sweet. 
In gratitude our hearts to bend — 

We part but oft to meet. 

Fidelity, we pledge fore'er 

Our hearts in sacred trust. 
We'll ne'er forget this day, this year, 

Upon life's wave we're thrust. 

The principles here learned, we'll use 
To serve the world through life. 

No confidence will we abuse; 
We'll conquer in the strife! 

So let us sing! No, not farewell — 

Only a brief good-bye. 
This love with which our bosoms swell, 

We pledge shall never die. 

Ah! A. C. C, our college grand, 
We love thy shades and lanes; 

And may thy noble walls here stand 
As long as life remains. 

Aye, many are the sacred spots 
On lawn, in shade and halls, 

That now and e'er our memory dots. 
Our cup of joy within thy walls 

Most constantly and fully flowed 
From out thy wisdom fount. 

Thy truth has in our heart so glowed 
That we errors surmount, 

And soar to highest realms divine — 
To serve the world each day. 

Nothing that's gross our hearts confine, 
These, truth alone shall sway. 

And to professors, noble souls, 

The faculty so true, 
From hearts of love a song now rolls 

Of gratitude to you. 

So nobly have you done your work! 

Patient and kind you've been — 
No single duty did you shirk. 

Our gratitude no pen 

Can tell! 'Tis time alone will show. 

Your training will reflect 
In us when to life's field we go, 

To serve as we expect. 

Alumni staunch and true we'll be, 

And in the festal hall 
Commencement next, as all will see 

At A. C. C. we'll cal 

And now, together, let us plec 

A resolution strong — 
True, noble, hearts full fledge 

To be immune to doing wrong.

The world we'll serve with daily toil 

To help our fellow-man 
Nothing that's vile our hearts shall soil. 

— Be pure: we know we can! 

Then, comrades, come join hand and heart, 

Sing not a sad farewell — 
But sing as on life's way we start, 

Good-bye! The chorus swell! 

Good-bye to dear old college days' 

Preserved in anthems sweet 
Are all our student roundelays 

We'll sing when next we meet. 

And may our walk through divers ways 
Oft bring our paths to meet — 

And thinking e'er of college days, 
Will seek always to greet 

Each other with a song of cheer, 

And with a helping hand, 
And though apart let none e'er fear 

But united we'll stand'

NOW it came to pass in the fifth year of the reign of Jesse C. Caldwell over the lads and lasses assembled at 
Atlantic Christian College, there came to the land of Wilson, a large boy, a small lad in knee trousers and a 
still smaller girl in short dresses. Their names were respectively, Joel, Sam and Jessie. These three had a 
hard time during this initiative year, but in the sixth year of the aforesaid reign they were joined by a number of 
other boys and girls who came to enjoy all the glories of the Freshies. Well will they remember the skirmishes, 
fights — even battles that were waged upon their devoted heads. These were placed under the rule of the 
king's hired servants (the faculty). They placed grievous burdens on these Freshmen, who rose up and went 
unto their beloved king, and said unto him: 

"0, king, the burdens of thy servants are too great to be borne. Grant unto us one day of rest from the hands 
of our masters." 

And he said unto them: 

"Thou shalt continue thy labor as they have commanded thee. Go thy way." 

Now, the Freshies were pricked in their hearts at this saying, and it came to pass, as the )-ear drew nigh to a 
close and they, weary of their heavy yokes, arose in the night and said: 

"We shall have freedom, even if we disobey our king." 

They passed from their walled rooms into the outer court, which opened into the classroom of one of their 
masters, and prepared a great feast. And it came to pass, while they gathered together the fragments, there stood 
in their midst one of their taskmasters — Mrs. Barham — both hearing them and asking them questions. And when 
they saw her they were amazed. She said unto them: 

"Why hast thou thus dealt with us? Behold, I sought from whence the noise came, and find ye thus in your 
revel. Go to your rooms." 

The next day while it was yet early, the Seniors arose in revolt, when they found their diplomas, which were 
in the classroom, had been ruined by these feasters. There was wailing and gnashing of teeth from the demerits 
that were heaped upon the innocent Freshies. 

But, in the seventh year of the reign of the aforesaid king, when the Sophomore Class assembled, familiar 
faces were missing, having grown weary under the rule of their over-lords. Some new faces were seen, which 
promised to add spice and excitement to the hitherto work-a-day, colorless existence of this brilliant class. As 
these toiled, their burdens were lightened, and they became famous in the eyes of the king. 

And it came to pass, in the eighth year of this honored king's reign, when the Juniors were assembled, there 
were in all five and ten souls. To these, the king's servants sought to give light as they, the Juniors, sat in dark- 
ness and in the shadow of ignorance to guide their minds into the way of knowledge. The class grew and waxed 
strong in mind and body. Now there arose in the hearts of the mighty Seniors, a desire to send forth an Annual 
which would proclaim their fame throughout the land. When lo! There came a voice from the Juniors saying: 

"O, mighty Seniors, it is a true report which we have heard in our own land of your saying, and of your wis- 
dom. We have tasks that ye know not of; let us, therefore, follow after the things which make for victory in the 
day when we shall be judged according to our works." 

There came unto the king the voice of the Seniors crying: 

"O king! The Juniors do strive against us in our efforts." 

But the strength of the Juniors prevailed. 

In the last year of our king's reign, the Class of 1916 — eleven in number — chose for themselves a leader, 
Samuel, and he and all his company did make much sacrifice of rest and peace for the work whereunto they had 
been called. It came to pass after five months of toil and examinations were passed, there went out from the king 
a decree unto the eleven which granted unto them many rights and privileges. And there was much gladness 
among them. And when they have performed all things according to the law of the king, they will return each 
unto his own people. And this ends the brilliant history of the college career of this illustrious Class of 1916. But 
of its mighty doings in the far-reaching future, a stronger hand than mine will have to write.

LAST summer, while attending the Pan-American Fair, I accidentally came upon an old man who was 
selling some articles to which he would give no name except, "a mystic globe." Always having had a desire 
to know something of my future, I eagerly purchased a "globe" at a price which seemed to me at that time 
very exorbitant. Since the globe has been in my possession, strange to say, I have never until this day had the 
courage to ask for a revelation of my own future. Realizing that our college life is nearing its close, and knowing 
that we might never know the future career of one another, I thought, since it was in my power to give this infor- 
mation, I owed this duty to my classmates, and for the first time, I sought aid from the "mystic globe." When 
I locked the door of my room, I carefully took the globe from my trunk. Softly calling the name of one of my class- 
mates, Meta Barrington, I placed the globe on the table and breathlessly waited to see what would take place. 

Slowly, the globe began to revolve and dim outlines of figures appeared. I saw Meta sitting before a large 
audience. Imagine my surprise when I saw that the faces of the audience were all black As I looked, Meta arose 
and began delivering a lecture on "The Observance of Parliamentary Rules." Then I understood — Meta had 
become a foreign missionary and had organized a very successful "Young Women's Christian Association," among 
the Africans. 

A slight mist overspread the globe, and when it cleared away, only two figures, a man and his wife, were visible. 
They were walking together across a large college campus. From the carriage and general appearance of one, he 
was easily recognizable as a college professor, but the other — surely I had seen that face — oh! I remember now, 
Willa Chestnutt. Reminiscences of former days at A. C. C. came over me, and there dawned upon me, for the 
first time perhaps, the real significance of the one grade in Philosophy so much higher than the others. Why had 
we not realized it before? 

A slight noise startled me and when I again turned my attention to the globe I noticed a great change. This 
time the scene was the interior of a church. A handsome blonde was arising to sing a solo. The sweet voice could 
belong to no other than Ruth Hardy. Then I noticed that the church looked familiar to me. Of course it did, the 
Methodist Church at Wilson — then a problem presented itself to me — all the members of our class were fond of 
A. C. C. and of Wilson, but why had Ruth chosen to remain there ten years after her graduation? A few 
moments' thought helped me to realize that the college, even in Ruth's Junior year, was not her only attraction 
at Wilson. 

Hearing a loud voice, I thought someone was at my door, but soon I perceived that the voice was altogether 
an imaginary one coming from a large tabernacle presented by the globe. A closer examination revealed an im- 
mense sign before the entrance; "J. E. Vause, Great Singer and Evangelist, Washington, D. C, Feb. 12th until 
April 1st." I further learned through my mystic sphere that he had been holding meetings in all of the large cities 
of the United States and had been very successful, in spite of the fact that he discarded coat, collar and tie as he 
proceeded in his sermon. It took me several minutes to convince myself that this second Billy Sunday was 
"Bro. Joel " Probably the difficulty partially lay in the fact that his disregard for looks was so utterly different 
from his attitude while at A. C. C. 

For a moment I allowed my mind to drift back to A. C. C, but only for an instant, because a slight click in the 
direction of the globe again drew my attention to it. This time I saw the front page of one of the best papers of 
New York City. There I read an account of the life of Miss Whitley, the successful playwright of the age, whose 
masterpiece was to be presented that night in one of the grandest opera houses of the city. The author, herself, 
was to take the part of the heroine. New York was raving over her plays and the public eagerly clamoring for 
more. At last, Ruth's highest aspirations had been attained. She was loved by everybody. 

This scene glided from view and I saw the interior of a large hospital. A small figure dressed in white was 
silently going from cot to cot, administering medicine with gentle hands. Was it Irma? Well, why not? Why 
shouldn't Irma be a trained nurse? Did she not get her first steps in training — that is in learning how to stay awake 
at night — at A. C. C. ? It was only a natural outcome, but we should never have thought it. While I was thinking 

19 1 fi 


iiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiKiiiiiii,,' .n,iii!i^r^ 

i,' ... ' , 


®Jji? pn* SCttnt 

of Irma and contrasting her life with the life she once lead, the door of the hospital opened and a distinguished 
physician entered. But what had he to do with my class? Ah! I understood now — Sam was rolling up his fortune 
with pills and quinine. 

Being anxious to learn the fate of my roommate, I must have whispered Jessie's name, for immediately the 
scene in the globe changed. This time showing a letter addressed as I had often seen Jessie address them. No — 
this time there was an "s" placed after the "Mr." Jessie, of whom we all expected so much, had made only this 
matrimonial change. Her address was not Wilson, North Carolina, now, but New Wilson, Oklahoma, and Law- 
rence was there; hence, Jessie was not worrying over the past. 

By this time I wondered that none of my classmates were presiding over a school room. The next scene set 
my mind at rest by revealing that Fannie Alyrt had chosen the teaching profession — or perhaps it would be more 
correct to say "one" of the teaching professions, and now resides at Greenville, N. C. 

Fain would I have learned more of Fannie's future, but the globe continued its revolution and I saw this time 
a very familiar scene. Mr. Muilberger's studio and Elizabeth Kinsey sitting at the piano — but where was 
Mr. Muilberger? In an instant it flashed over me that it was now Miss Kinsey's studio. After several years' 
studying in New York, she had returned to her Alma Mater and was successfully filling the position of Director 
of Music. 

By this time I felt that I had courage to learn my own fate. Anxiously slipping my chair nearer to the table, 
I jarred the globe slightly, which, making a final revolution, fell crashing to the floor. May that fateful crash have 
no significance as to my future.

Parting iErttumtflB 

WE, the eleven Seniors, wish to distribute a few of our magic gifts, some owned individually and some 
collectively, to certain of our schoolmates, professors and friends. 
Not that we fear we will be forgotten unless we leave remembrances to those with whom we have been 
associated, that we do this. Far from it. We dispense these gifts for various reasons; namely, we like to see people 
happy and we know that any of our gifts will give joy to the recipients; again we realize the need that some will 
have for these gifts and the value they will be to the school of which the recipients are a part; finally, we no longer 
have need for many of these things we are giving away. 

Elizabeth, who at first would not even listen to the rest of the class when we suggested that she should give 
to Lillie Belle Hardison her "Penn," has at last consented to part with this, her best loved possession, with the 
hope that Belle will not have the difficulty in making "it" write that she has had. 

Ruth Hardy's box of rouge is to be given to Elizabeth Brown, who so closely follows in the footsteps of the 
donor that we find her the most deserving to receive the gift. The one provision is that it will be as carefully used 
as heretofore. 

Sallie, who holds the only diamond in the class, because of her love and admiration for Miss Lackey declares 
she will give it to none other than this teacher whom we kindly request never to tell the school girls that Mrs. 
Lackey purchased the ring with money received for a "pet cow." One such experience last year has made the 
class wise on that subject. 

Jessie, innocent Jessie, we like her as she is, but we realize that she will have to be more self-asserting and bold 
after leaving her Alma Mater and, realizing also that Jessie's innocent manner will be especially beneficial to some- 
one, we duly bestow this faculty upon the deserving Elsie Respass. 

Sam, who possesses a keen insight into others' needs, kindly bestows his "cinch" on Professor Kent upon 
John Waters. The entire class hopes this "cinch" will prove as beneficial to John as it has to Sam during the 
entire year. 

The class even more perhaps than the possessor, realizes that in giving Willa's philosophical talent we are be- 
stowing upon the recipient, Lill Chapman, a most wonderful gift. We wish to give to Lill special caution. Endeavor 
to use the gift with as much skill as it has been used by its former owner. 

To Herbert Quinerly we bestow a voice; one that can in low tones plead for the hearts of fair maidens, can 
sonorously call to order the noisiest of student meetings, can lead the chapel hymns and Lorelei Chorus and, finally, 
in an oration win the hearts of judges. Would it be superfluous to say that this voice has heretofore belonged to 
our classmate, Joel Vause? 

Irma, with her usual timidity, requests that her dry wit be given to one she feels to be especially needy in this 
particular commodity — Mildred Harper. 

Ruth Whitley has had double care during her whole college career. Besides the natural protection of her 
Alma Mater, her affectionate and careful relatives, Misses Fannie and Myrtie Harper, have attended to her every 
need and desire. Since their assistance can no longer follow their generous hearted niece, Ruth bestows upon her 
cousin, Grace Holiday, the kindly care of those relatives. 

Meta desires that we bestow upon two of her chums and schoolmates, Mary Richardson and Maude Russell, 
a package of letters received at stated intervals from September, 1915, to January, 1916. The package will be 
found by lifting a plank of the attic floor under the electric light and are to read by them next year when suffering 
from the blues with the hope that the poems contained therein will cheer their lovesick hearts. 

Fannie, because she has used all her wit, physical ability and intelligence, save what she deemed wise to keep 
for use in her new life, finds no gift other than herself to bestow upon some fortunate one. Considering her request 


• ■ ■ ,. 

19 16 


ah? Put? 2Cnnt 



that she belong to Professor Peele, we nod approval only with sad hearts, and after considering his frequent letters 
and anxious and constant visits in trying to keep her from overwork. 

To Professor Muilberger, we give our best wishes that he may be able to train Maude and Olga to practice as 
studiously as Sallie and Fannie have done. 

Upon Miss Salmon, wishing to bestow a gift that will give her a taste of the joy that we have been to her, 
we have had all our English essays, sketches and themes compiled and these are for our English teacher alone. 
"Pis sweet to us, even now, to think of the praise she will give us when telling other classes how such work should 
be done. 

To the Juniors we wish to bestow our superior faculty of intelligence. Knowing that the class of next year will 
be unable to utilize all of this abundant gift, we have provided a list to whom the superfluous intelligence shall be 
distributed. These are John Rose, Mary Proctor, Ada Gray Dixon, Hervey Yendrick, Rosalind Taylor, Hannah 
Daniels, Charlie McCotter, Juanita Crockett, Ben Mattox, Ethel McArthur, Fred Wells, Oscar Mattox, Annie 
Deans, Leamon Whorton. We also bestow upon the Juniors the following privileges: taking long walks, going 
unchaperoned into drugstores, receiving gentlemen callers once a month, taking lower class girls downtown 
during the week; and the new one, our exclusive right of going unchaperoned to moving picture shows. This 
privilege we deem it best not to give to others. Please do not consider us selfish in withholding this benefit, but we 
fear that others might not as conscientiously use this privilege as we have done. And above all else, we hold dear 
the interest and honor of our Alma Mater. 

Other Seniors have bestowed their dignity on certain schoolmates, but we find this unnecessary, as we have 
already diffused their dignity over the whole student body. 

Our love and faithful loyalty we divide between our Alma Mater, the faculty, and Dr. and Mrs. Caldwell and 
family. The last share to be taken with them to their new field of labor.

In the land where the long leaf pine abides, 

Is a college where many a student resides. 

By the name of A. C, which has students quite gay. 

Who remain from September till late in May. 

Of all the classes none quite can excel 
The one now of which I am going to tell. 
It is called the Sophomore Class, you see, 
Just one step above the poor "Freshie." 

Perhaps, as our class is very small, 
And there's only one boy in the class — that's a 
You would like to know; just who are we — 
We Sophomores striving to win a degree. 

There's Alice, a very bright maid, you know, 
Wears a smile wherever you meet her; 
And everywhere that Alice goes. 
She's accompanied by her "Nita." 

Lucy Brothers, almost a Sophomore in Art, 
Is always as happy as a meadow lark; 
Especially when "Slickums" does ask for a 
From this little maid of the "safety eight." 

Mary and "Hessie" I surely must mention, 
Two jolly game sports, beyond comprehension, 
The first from Grimesland, the last from Dunn, 
Who are usually "broke," and crying for "mon. 

Blanche is a cheerful and brilliant young Miss, 
Who studies and seldom her lesson does miss. 
Her manner is pleasing and wins for her, friends 
Who indeed will always be true to the end. 

Grace is a student, sincere and true, 
Who is usually happy, and never blue 
Unless "Bob" forgets to write 
That letter to her, yes, every night. 

Elsie, dear girl, means to study her lesson, 
For she wants to get a degree in Expression, 
But always her mind does wander to "Lappin, 
'Tis strange, yet true, but this always happens. 

Olga Dardin is very bright and gay, 

And rooms this year with her old chum "Grey 

Winsome is she, in esteem by all held. 

And her common expression is, "Oh, do tell." 

Now here comes "Peachy," bringing up the rear. 
Her eyes are always bright and her voice is clear, 
And to show that vanity is not in her mind, 
This verse was written by one who is kind. 

There's only one male to adorn the class — 
"Abe" is not least though placed at the last. 
To be a preacher he doth aspire, 
But a greater hit he would make in a choir. 

Now, thirteen verses this poem does possess, 
But don't let that worn - you, just keep your mind at rest 
"Sophomore, Sophomore, yes you bet 
Sophomore, Sophomore, we'll win vet.

"Ye gods and little fishes!" 
What shall we poor Freshies do, 
When these bossy, spiteful Seniors 
Come about us with their cry and hue? 

That we have to have a*poem — 
Poem that will be so very fine — 
To be published in their Annual, 
And this must be mine. 

Do they think that we are Miltons, 
Brownings, Lowells, Shakespeares, too, 
And can write verse at their order 
As these poets were wont to do r 

Oh, ye Freshies, be not very vain 
Of this reputation that we've won, 
For you see that we've to live it 
From the rising to the setting of the sun. 

Oh, of course we'll gladly live it, 

And come out triumphant, too, 

And these students will look in wonder 

At the glory of the Freshies, bright and new

A is for Abe, a man not unkind; 

His loud laugh bespeaks his big, vacant mind. 

B is for Bowen, so cute and so sweet; 

Her sweet little giggle is "sure" hard to beat. 

C is for Charlie, a "sporty young sinner"; 

Who always "fills up" when we have beans for dinner. 

D is for "Dad," in other words, Waters; 

Who always feels best courting other men's daughters. 

E is for Elsie, who has a sweet smile; 
Her charming talk, lonely hours beguile. 

F is for Flunk, a very bad habit; 

And I'm sorry to say that most of us have it. 

G is for Grady, who sets hearts a-whirl (?); 
With a dress and false hair he'd pass for a girl 

H is for Hervey, more wise than an elf; 
To prove it is useless — he admits it himself. 

I is for Isabelle, that dainty wee child; 
To say that we love her is putting it mild. 

J is for John, a tall, mystic lad; 

With all the "Dorm" girls he's getting in bad 

K is for Kinsey, with ways shy and quaint; 
She never forgets to put on the paint. 

L is for Lill, so jolly and gay; 

Just give her a chance and she'll win the day. 

M is for Mattox, we have quite a number; 
All of them somewhat addicted to slumber.

N is for Nettie, with fair golden locks; 

She'd run twenty miles to dodge the smallpox. 

O is for Otto, who leaves a big track; 
Show him a girl, and he'll never come back. 

P is for Procter, the girl with the glasses; 

She prefers above all things a "jug" of molasses. 

Q is for Quiz, the professors' byword; 

What's more, my young friends, they don't make it a shy word. 

R is for "Rip," in arguments skilled (?"); 
In the society scrap he nearly got killed. 

S is for Sadler, who plays pretty tunes; 

He has one great failing, it is that he "spoons." 

T is for Taylor, that raven-haired lass; 
And of her admirers, my! there's a mass. 

U is for Unity, by which we may stand; 

May this be the rule of our jolly student band. 

V is for Vause, better known as "Kow"; 
If we can't do a thing, he'll show us how. 

W is for Walker, with long, bushy hair; 

If he'd get it cut short, he'd look less like a bear. 

X is for grades we get on exams; 
The only results of our terrible crams. 

Y is for Yells — we have several score; 
But to all outside they're often a bore. 

Z is for Zeal, which we all should possess; 
For, without fail, it would lead to success. 

And so on and on through the years that will come; 
Farewell, our dear readers, our tale it is done.

Annual Report of the Experimental Station 

Process: Pickle them down in strong solution of Math, English 
and Philosophy, adding a touch here and there of Latin, German 
and Bible. Keep them in this solution about three months, applying 
frequent tests. At Christmas, let them out for two weeks, but 
subject them to rigid examinations as soon as you get them back. 
After that, it might be well to strengthen the solution by adding two 
or three other courses. Keep them in close confinement, except for 
a few days in April when they have not fully awakened. Repack 
and keep till the last of May when the weather is so warm that it is 
safe to let them go for three months. Repeat the process from year to 

Result: Many will have fallen by the wayside, but of those 
left there will be at least one very effective adding machine, two 
dictionaries, an encyclopedia, a jumping jack or two, and several 
professional blockheads.

THE spirit and interest manifested here in college athletics are unexampled anywhere. 
The athletic spirit is of a finer grade than is usually seen in colleges in that it brings 
all eligible candidates out to try for the teams. This participation is conducive to 
bodily health and development, which should be the good of all college sports. 

The athletic association consists of the whole student bod)', and is splendidly organized 
under the direction of the faculty. There are three distinct departments of the association. 
These are: the tennis department, the basketball department, and the baseball department. 

The tennis department has a Boys' Tennis Club and a Girls' Tennis Club, each with 
an organization of its own. Tennis is a favorite sport among the students in the fall and 
spring, and the courts are incessant!}' in use. 

The basketball department has two divisions — a Girls' Team and a Boys' Team. These 
are under their managers, coaches and captains, selected at the first of the season. Much 
enthusiasm and rooting is displayed at the games, and this spirit of all "pulling together" 
has caused many a forlorn hope to be changed to a victory. 

With Mr. Cozart, a former student, as coach for this year's baseball team, and with 
much promising material with which to work, we are expecting a very successful season. 
All players must be bona fide students, and any taint of professionalism in the players is 
not tolerated.

ilu0tng0 of an Alumnus 

THE dream of the college student in the Freshman year is not so much of social life, student body honors, 
athletic starring, making a hit with the Faculty or even standing high in the estimation of some certain 
individual, as it is of that one great prize that stimulates him to enter the race and run it with patience — his 
Diploma. The vision of that to be gained at the end of four years 1 drudgery causes everything else to be eclipsed 
and grow insignificant. 

Then the realization of the hard, stern facts of college work, with all of its attendant hardships tends to increase 
the desire of the Freshman to finish his years of toil and enter upon life's duties — a finished product. As the years 
drag on, the student yearns more and more to reach his goal and end his course. This desire often blinds one to 
the real appreciation of the greater joys of college life. It is not until the opening of college the next autumn that 
the graduate begins to realize that his college days are over; and these days, never to be forgotten and never to be 
relived, have completed a finished chapter in his life — and perhaps the most important chapter, too. And, as the 
months roll on and reports begin to reach one of the student body activities; basketball, tennis and other athletic 
sports around the old familiar campus, society activities, receptions at which some other fellow is receiving the 
attention of the "wee sweet damsel" whose time you monopolized the night you won the honor for your Society, 
amid a clash of oratory or argument that would have excited the envy of a Demosthenes or a Socrates; — when she 
wore off the medal that you had spent the whole winter in trying to win and with it the bouquet of flowers your 
Society presented to you, and you lay awake the rest of the night after the reception was over thinking of all the 
pretty things your friends had said about you and wondering if a Certain One was at that time sighing on a mid- 
night pillow which covered the tiny piece of gold that your energy had placed there. Yes, these and hundreds of 
other scenes and incidents assail one's mind as he thinks of the many incidents of college days that in their realiza- 
tion seemed to be such very commonplace and very little things. 

Thus, as I sit alone to-night and think of the old familiar scenes and festivities of the seasons never to be re- 
lived, I am reminded that though out in the world with its glitter and applause where honors are given and taken; 
where festivities are the order of the season and responsibility is promoting mature manhood and womanhood; 
that the applause that sounded loudest and touched deepest and abides now while the regard for the more recently 
earned honors is passing away, were the applause and honors won in the dear old days at A. C. C. 

This musing blends into a dream, as I sit before the dying embers. Ah! there appears before me the faces of 
those I know so well and have learned to love more and more as the years have rolled by since we toiled together 
in the halls of our Alma Mater. As I look upon these pictures, flitting before me in the twilight shades, and the 
memories of the days gone by are revived, the firelight's glow and the music of its sparkling roar attracts the A'luse 
to my ear and causes her to touch her sweetest note upon the poet's lyre; aye, even time has turned back in her 
flight and I again am the college poet just for to-night. Vergil sung of arms and of heroes. That same theme stirs 
my soul to-night as there passes down the aisles of my memory the images of my college mates as vividly as they 
passed down the halls of A. C. C. 

Each one arouses a poet's verse as they appear. Lo! who comes here. Ah! 'tis none other than who I thought: 
Mrs. G. A. Patterson, nee, Mary Moye: 
"Aye, faithful to her task was she — 

And faithful still to A. C. C. 

Noble, true in thought and deed, 

In all of life she will succeed. 

"Glad were the days of college fun! 
We wish 'twere now that they'd begun. 
You always have and e'er will be 
Enshrined in mem'ries of A. C. C. " 

Yes, Mary, you will recall those happy days, as will many others at college. We have met around the festal 
board since those student days and happy has been the occasions when the fellowship of winters past has been 
renewed. Not one of us but who would rejoice at the opportunity to turn the hand of time back a space and live 
again those student days. But one visage blends into another, even while I muse! Behold! another face is formed. 
Who appears here? Why, Mary Anderson. Well, may I ask if you rejoice in the memories of our student days? 
Yes, what does she say: 

"Happy were my college days, — 
As happy as could be. 
I hear the song bird's roundelays, 
His chirruping in the tree. 

I well recall the rising bell, 

The closing bell at night, 
These memories I love so well, 

They'll ne'er be put to flight.

"'Twas bells at morning, noon and night, 
How harsh then was their sound, 
But music now by no means slight 

That makes our hearts rebound/' 
We were happy then, each and all, though we did not realize and appreciate it. 

But while I muse upon this face so familiar and known so well to the Alumni, it fades before my gaze and 
another appears in its stead. Who is this but Hattie Dailey? Early was the age of the college you honored in 
your youth. Happy were the days spent there with those you knew and have learned to love better with the 
increasing years of separation. What has the real experiences of life taught you as to the appreciation of the valued 
influence of A. C. C. and the ties formed there? The answer couched in poetic form must be: 
"Happy the days beneath the trees, 
Around the Campus, too, 
Cool and refreshing was the breeze; 

The skies were summer blue. 
The friends I made were stanch and true; 

The ties that bind are strong; i- 

Those college days, clear through and through, 

Were right and never wrong." 
Ah! a burst of sparks changes the figure and whose is it that appears instead but Mrs. Clay Andrews, once 
Ruth Howard. Then, Ruth, what is your estimate of the student days? Again the Muse sings: 
"Give me once more a day of the past 
On the Campus of A. C. C. 
And gather around me, friends, — 'till the last 

One of old times I see. 
Let's sing the songs that once did cheer 

Our hearts in other days. 
We know no sigh and have no fear. 

So loud our voices raise." 
The song ceases and a happy throng of former students fade from view until all are gone but one. Who is 
she? Why, Clyde Farmer, now Mrs. Palmer Harris. May I ask you to testify as to the abiding impressions of 
your college days? Ah! you, too, will speak in rhyme: 
"Thy walls and lanes have ever shined 
Upon the pictures of my mind. 
The days there spent in thy domains, 
Constant, yea, e'er with me remains! 

"Aye, students of the former days, 
As now we walk our several ways 
Forget we not old A. C. C. ! 
But faithful to her we will be." 

May this song ever characterize the students who now constitute the Alumni of A. C. C. Then you will not 
tarry, but begin to fade? Aye, there is another figure! Well, it is none other than Eliza Kennedy. Yes, Mrs. 
V. W. Dillon. Cupid has been playing havoc with the girls' hearts since their college days. But, will you speak, 
Eliza? Yes, I knew you had some meed of praise to sing in behalf of your Alma Mater. Listen: 
"Those college days so long ago, 
I well recall them now. 
Their mem'ries down life's pathway flow, 

And e'er make glad each hour. 
I long to live them once again, 
And sing the songs of old — 
The songs that bring their soft refrain — 

Sweet mem'ries ne'er grown cold." 
Yes, those old college songs, it matters not how discordant they were, had never a harsh sound. In fancy we 
love to hear them now, even though there was a time when we longed to get away from the din and yell. But still 
the falling shadows as they flicker upon the floor, mould another picture, and the visage is none other than my 
old friend, society colleague, classmate and college chum, C. Manly Morton. 

Well, Clem! Your familiar face brings back memories of the Night Hawk days. But we can't say much 
about that distinguished organization for fear of divulging certain tenets of the constitution. Ah! you were the 
Poet Laureate of A. C. C. In those days, too, there was all manner of high pressure stimulus for an A. C. C. fellow 
to write poetry. Will you give me a rhyme in testimony of your loyalty to our Alma Mater? Ah ! I knew you could:

"The early years at A. C. C. 

Were years of toil and stress. 
No battle could there ever be 

'Mong soldiers as hard to press! 
But on we toiled through sun and shower — 

Undaunted, unafraid. 
Discouragement could never cower; 

Nor courage be gainsaid. 
So on we fought and prayed and toiled, 

The battle sure to win. 
At last our banner raised unsoiled, 

We did the

"And often now my memory turns 
To scenes that haunt me- still, 
And in my heart a longing burns, 

And doth my bosom fill, 
To live once more 'mong comrades there 

As in the days gone by — 
And once again our blessings share. 

These mem'ries ne'er shall die." 
Yes, that's the song I knew you would sing as you dream of the days of old. The ties once formed at A. C. C. 
shall never be severed and we will keep the memories green until life's race is run. 

But another shower of sparks hides you from my view, and the faces of other comrades pass so rapidly in suc- 
cession that the Muse sings only a stanza as they pass before my enchanted view. Whose is the face that beams out 
of the firelight's glow just now? Why, it is none other than the face of Sallie May Wilson! Well, what is your 
song from the embers' glow? Listen to the stanza sung: 
"Happv were the davs we spent 
In the halls of A.' C. C. 
Deeply lies all that they meant; 

And blessed e'er will be. 
The influence that came my way. 

The ties there formed abide — 
And ever shall my future sway, 
No matter what betide." 

Another face, another song! Well, it is the face of Ersie Walker, now Mrs. Dunlap Neely. Listen to her song: 
"The days that in my girlhood passed 
In music halls so gay, 
Were those that in my mem'ry fast 

Abide until to-day." 
While the song rolls, the sparks hide this face to reveal another, the face of Mabel Jones, who is now wearing 
the name of Mrs. J. H. Chinnis. I know you have a song of cheer for old time's sake. What is it? 
"Music, friends, and all good cheer 
Ring out in song so clear. 
The faces of those friends of old 
Wake mem'ries ne'er grown cold, 
As often as I think of days 
Of happiness that bides always." 

Whose is the face that presents itself but that of Sue Yelverton, who is now Mrs. C. S. Eagles! Well, Sue, 
what can you say? 

"School days, happiness supreme, — 
I love thy memory still. 
On me my comrades' faces beam, 
Sweet dreams my heart e'er fill." 

And beside Mrs. Eagles there appears no other face than that of Elizabeth Eagles, now Mrs. Ivey Smith. 
So you, too, have a song to sing, yes: 

"The sweetest scenes of girlhood days 
That linger with me evermore, 
As on life's mem'ry book I gaze 

Are those, my college days of yore."

But there are two others of the Class of 1910 who appear before me now, and they are really the faces of Verdie 
Noble and Mary Edwards. How like the olden days to see the familiar faces of these old school mates before me! 
Well, what have you to say in behalf of A. C. C. ? 
"Our days have every one been filled. 
Since out of school we've been; 
But e'er those songs and scenes have thrilled — 

And bide with us as they did then — " 
And as these faces sink from sight in the glowing coals, behold, the entire Class of 191 1 glides into view. Are 
they all here? Let's see: Yes, there is Lossie Davis, Mattie Phillips (who is now Mrs. Eugene Wood), Mattie 
Neely, Harriett Settle, Georgia Howard, Elsie Gardner, Carrie Lewis and Ann Estelle Griffin. Well, this is a loyal 
group of Alumni. I know they have a song to cheer: 
"Come, comrades, join now hand in hand, 
We'll sing a song of cheer 
As once again, the happy band, 

Our graduating year 
We were and ever more shall be. 

In loyalty we'll stand, 
Until the end, by A. C. C. 

A happy, trusting band." 
Well, the song_of this class has scarcely died away and the faces faded from view before the Class of 1912 

A well remembered class 

and gay — 

listen to 1 

passes before me. There is the whole quintet. 
"College days, college days, bright and fu 
We long again to turn our steps 
Unto thy realms and walk thy way. 

We cherish highly thy precepts, 
And are guided by them day by day." 

Such expressions could come only from a class composed of J. J. Walk 
Settle, Carrie Bowen and Agnes Spain, who is now Mrs. Horrace Settle. 

But another class of equal recognition present themselves to view. This is the Class of 191 3 and is com- 
posed of Susie Grey Woodard, Elsie Langley, Sallie Bridges (now Mrs. Henry Scott), Lillie Hewitt and Eunice 
Andrews. Listen to what this class have to say. 
"Let time turn back for once in its flight, 
And take us to college just for to-night. 
There let us sing and play as of old — 
Where joys we experienced, aye, blessings untold." 

Aye, the group now presenting themselves are those of my own class, the Class of 1914. Yes, we are not 
altogether forgotten. Of course we have a song to sing! Just listen to the rhyme of Ben Oden, Blanche Wells, 
Kathryne Wells, Elsie Pugh, Alice Privette and the dreamer: 
"Of all the happy days we've spent, 
Our college days are best. 
Our gratitude no pen can vent 

For time we did invest 
Within thy walls, oh, A. C. C, 

So we will sing thy praise, 
And sacred shall thy memory be; 

Loud, loud our songs we'll raise." 
Ah! there is but one more group that can appear and that is the Class of 1915, composed of Henrietta Moye, 
Fannie Moye, Mary Belle Smith, Bessie Hodges, Jessie Hodges, Hattie Hodges and Lill Chapman. They say: 
"Oh! college grand, our A. C. C, 
We'll ne'er erase thy memory, 

Nor lose a single song, 
But ever blest our lives shall be; 
And ever true, yes, true to thee, 

Our service doth belong." 
Well, my dream is ended and the songs of these classes and individuals have died away. But their memories 
linger still. It may have been that we were once anxious to get out into the whirl and din of the world's battle, 
but since getting there we have begun to see what happiness was ours while in the college family. So let each of 
us be loyal to the institution that has started us successfully on life's path.

[As Clipped from the College Magazine) 

September 24th, a reception was given by the former members of the faculty and student body to the new 
members of the faculty and new students. The faculty and Senior Class constituted the receiving line. A short 
program was rendered and refreshments were served. 

It is with deep regret we note that illness necessitates the absence of Prof, and Mrs. E. L. Barham from the 
college this year. Prof. Barham resigned his work before Christmas last year, and was unable to return at the 
opening of the session. 

The Annual Hallowe'en Party was given on the 29th of October. This occasion always brings joy to the student 
body. It is just long enough after the opening of school for Cupid's poisoned arrows to afflict their victims. For- 
tune telling was a specialty. The decorations and refreshments were suggestive of the season. 

Since the opening of school we hear of the marriage of two of the former members of the faculty. On Novem- 
ber 15th, Miss Elizabeth Ford, former Professor of Language in Atlantic Christian College, was married to Mr. 
W. C. Cooper at her home in Georgetown, Ky. 

On November 3d, several of the members of our faculty attended the marriage of Miss Meta Uzzle of Wilson's 
Mills, N. C. Miss Uzzle was Assistant Art and Pianoforte Professor in A. C. C, several years ago. 

Wednesday, November 15th, was a momentous day in the history of the literary societies of the college. The 
girls' and boys' societies had been separated for two years, and the faculty decided better work would be done under 
the old regime. Bonfires, yells and flag-raisings were campus features of the evening. 

On Thanksgiving evening, from eight until eleven o'clock, the girls of the Hesperian Society entertained the 
faculty and Alethian Society in honor of the Hesperian boys. The reception hall was decorated in the society 
colors, red and white, and this color scheme was carried out throughout the evening. Games were played, but the 
main feature of the evening consisted of contests. Refreshments of cream, cake and mints were served. 

The Alethian Society girls were at home to the faculty and Alethian boys in the College Library, Monday 
evening, November 22d. The receiving line was composed of the officers of the society. Musical selections were 
rendered and games were played. Punch, and chocolate and divinity fudge were served. All too soon the time for 
departure arrived. 

After the boys' and girls' societies were combined into the literary societies, the boys realized the necessity 
of a debating club for their own benefit. On Tuesday night, December 7th, the young men, assisted by several 
members of the faculty, effected the organization of the Adelphian Debating Club. They have a zeal for loyalty 
and work. 

According to custom, the forces of the two societies were mustered February 22d to cheer the two representa- 
tive orators from each society. Representing the Alethian Society were Tom Mattox and Joel E. Vause. Repre- 
senting the Hesperians were Ernest Paschall and Carlyle Dempsey. The palm was awarded to the Alethians, and 
a page of literary society was turned. 

For various reasons a Y. W. C. A. has not been a part of our college until this year. During November, the 
young ladies, assisted by Misses Humphrey and Lackey, effected a promising organization. The organization began 
its work with a membership of one hundred per cent of the young ladies. The topics and leaders for each meeting 
were chosen for the whole year. Some of the topics discussed are "A Clean Page," "Spiritual Muscle," "The 
Power of Thoughts," "Opportunities for Service," "Importance of Ideals," and "The Easter Triumph." The 
meetings are held every Sunday evening at six o'clock and are doing much to elevate the spiritual life of our young 
ladies. Many of the members are taking part and are interested in the association work.

Mr. Foust, who hails from the Hoosier State — Indiana — began a study of 
the art of Photography at the age of nineteen. He has traveled and worked 
among many of the leading Professional Studios of America, as well as having 
personally conducted some up-to-date and artistic galleries of the country. He 
is a member of the Tri-State Association of Photographic Artists of Virginia and 
the Carolinas, which fact is a high recommendation within itself. 

During the six years he has been established at Wilson he has taken the 
place of Wilson's leading Photographer in that he has displayed some of the most 
artistic workmanship, of which this city has reaped the benefit. 

Mr. Foust has been the photographer for Atlantic Christian College for six 
years, and in view of that fact we feel capable of speaking in behalf of his ability 
and commending him to the public as an artist from the standpoint of natural 
ability, thorough training, and broad experience. His work will give satisfaction 
in a high degree. We heartily invite the attention of our readers to the photo- 
graphic work displayed in this book, and then allow them to decide whether we 
are just in commending Mr. Foust, 

Wilson's Leading Photographer, to the Public 

Do You Know — 

On What Correct Prescription- 
Compounding Depends? 

Correct prescription-compounding depends absolutely upon knowledge and 
experience. The better knowledge and longer experience the druggist has, the 
more capable he is in selecting only those drugs which are most powerfully 
potent and give us the greatest degree of medical purity. The better knowl- 
edge and longer experience the druggist has, the more capable he is in com- 
pounding remedies, because in this work, as in all walks of life, it is experience 
and knowledge that count. We are certainly capable of putting up prescrip- 
tions in the very best way, and every prescription package bearing our label 
bears likewise our guarantee of absolute safety and benefit.

The Wilson Sanatorium had its beginning as a private institution in 1895 
in the old home of Dr. Ruffin on Nash Street, adjoining the New Briggs Hotel. 
It was organized by Doctors C. E. Moore and Albert Anderson and operated by 
the firm Moore and Anderson. The following year the old building was moved 
off the site and a larger and more appropriate building was erected on the same 
site. In 1902 Dr. E. T. Dickinson purchased one-third interest in the institution, 
and it was then operated as a private hospital by the firm of Moore, Anderson and 
Dickinson until 1907, when Doctors Moore and Dickinson purchased Dr. Ander- 
son's interest. It was then operated as a private institution by the firm of Moore 
and Dickinson until February, 1913, when Dr. A. F. Williams purchased the 
interest of Dr. Moore. The establishment since then and at present is operated 
by the firm of Drs. Dickinson and Williams as a private institution. 

The institution has enjoyed a good reputation and patronage, which have 
steadily increased throughout its history. At the present time it is being modern- 
ized by numerous changes in the interior, such as placing electric elevators, lab- 
orator}- apparatus, etc. The equipment is capable of accommodating twenty-five 
to thirty patients. It is located in the most attractive part of the city, adjoining 
the largest and most modern hotel. 

Drs. Dickinson and Williams are the College Physicians and strong friends 
of the Atlantic Christian College.
